A Laurel contractor has sued the Annapolis Housing Authority for $1.2 million, alleging that it failed to disclose the poor condition of its Harbor House complex when it solicited contractors for bids to renovate the buildings.R. J. Crowley Inc. charged in the suit that crews found so many building code violations and design defects when they went to work that it took a year longer than expected to complete the project and cost far more than the original $3.4 million bid."The building code violations and design deficiencies resulted in nearly 20 additions to the scope of work of the original contract," according to the suit, filed Friday in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court.

Just over 100 rowhouses in the Patterson Park area were auctioned off Tuesday, but the high bidders must wait to see if the selling company will accept their $4.2 million offer. Owner Grady Management Inc. has up to 10 days to decide whether to take the bid, which works out to about $43,000 for each of the 103 homes after the buyer's premium is added in. The suggested opening bid was $3,750,000. The team of men who won the bidding on the Baltimore properties declined to identify themselves, but their offer might not be the final word.

The new owner of the Harbor House restaurant will be allowed by the city liquor board to expand into a vacant clothing store on Prince George Street and to retain a 2 a.m. liquor license, despite protests from a lawyer who claims the board does not have the authority to grant those approvals.The city liquor board voted 3-1 Wednesday night to approve the expansion, saying the city charter gives it the power to approve expansion and transfer licenses.Harry Blumenthal, an Annapolis attorney who represents MKB Management in Lanham, disagrees.

Two run-down piers in Baltimore Harbor that once played a role in preserving liberty are being retooled for the pursuit of luxury. Developer Richard Swirnow is moving ahead with a $60 million plan to put 88 four-story townhouses on and near the piers, which must be rebuilt. The fanciest homes - 5,200 square feet - are expected to sell for more than $1 million when they are done in two years. Though the piers will be private, the public will not be totally shut out. A brick promenade and bulkhead will be built, thanks to $10 million from the city and state.

Paone said the knife had a blade between 16 and 18 inches long.Yesterday's sentencing cametwo months after the men pleaded guilty to armed robbery in county Circuit Court.

A few months ago, a frustrated Alderman Samuel Gilmer proposed to stop narcotics trafficking and drug-related killings by barricading Annapolis public housing projects. "We need to seal off all these housing projects and let the people in those projects begin to have some kind of feeling of safety," he declared, triggering an instant controversy.Annapolis authorities are now trying a less radical but, perhaps, a more realistic approach. The police department has opened a sub-station at Harbour House, a sprawling 278-unit development that is the city's largest public housing project.

IF BUILT TODAY, it is improbable that Harbor Hospital Center would rise along Hanover Street on the banks of the Middle Branch. With the continuing revitalization of Baltimore's shoreline, high-priced townhouses or a hotel might be more likely to occupy the site.The hospital, understanding this fact, has come up with the idea of sponsoring a self-contained, $20-million housing and health-care community on an underutilized stretch of the waterfront.This is a wonderful proposal that promises to strengthen parts of south Baltimore from Cherry Hill and Brooklyn deep into northern Anne Arundel County.
